I hope you are well, and enjoyed a wonderful Halloween and All Saint’s Day, if you celebrate it. A little update on new releases from me…
For me the end of the year writing wise has picked up I have been productive while not blogging, one novel completed so far. I sadly turned down one publisher for Sacrifices ( A romantic story with a historical element, but as always lots of suspense!) as they aren’t for me. So I sent out a few more queries, and pending their responses…which let’s face it takes forever right! I will be patient with this one, I am so tempted to self-publish it but I am being cheered on by family and friends to keep submitting my work. So here goes.
One Publishing Deal In The Bag Thou!…Yassss!
Something so unexpected happened around October’s full Moon (yes, I am a qualified astrologer too for those that are new! I love it, and it was a ‘lucky Moon’ when I looked at the planet’s positions). Anyway, a publisher across the water who publishes mainly urban fiction approached me, they asked if I would like to join their new team for 2020. They are establishing themselves fully and expanding. Now, I am NOT an urban fiction writer in any shape or form…I told them that too and mentioned I may not be the best fit, their response was, “we know you’re not, we want something fresh and for you to be yourself.” I could not believe it. I never thought I’d work with a publisher of this type, let alone someone ask me to join. Purely as I thought I’d never fit in. We negotiated a contract of one book to start with, I signed with them and 2020 I will release one romance title, or possibly a thriller under their label. I am very excited to write something “Kim’s way” for them.
You only live once right?, something told me “go for it girl, just one book.” So it was a very “lucky full Moon” energy for me indeed. I’ll keep you updated on this release due for the first quarter of 2020, a story idea actually came to me while I was in the bath LOL.
I remain optimistic about 2020 and what’s ahead, I’l keep pushing with Sacrifices and remain patient for the right agent or publisher. In the mean time, work on the two works in progress I have, and this idea for the contract I have signed!
Catch up with y’all soon.
